|Position:||Special Education Preschool|
Welcome to Ms. Lauren's Priority Preschool classroom! I am so happy you are here. Your family can refer to me as Ms. Lauren.
My Education and Professional Background
I began teaching at Bologna in 2017. I grew up in Mesa, but returned to AZ recently after 6 years in Seattle. I graduated from the University of Washington in 2012 with a Master's in Early Childhood Special Education. Formerly, I taught special education preschool and early intervention for 4 years in Washington. I have experience coaching preschool teachers and parents on how best to work with their child to maximize strengths, reduce stress or power struggles, and meet the many needs of students and families. It is important to me that students and family gain the skills necessary to fully enjoy their lives and have success in their homes, schools, and communities.
My Educational Philosophy
My primary focus in the classroom is for each student to feel seen. We work together as a classroom community to gain vital social, communication, independence, and school readiness skills necessary for engaging with the classroom and school community.
